For my contribution to this month’s Power Tool Challenge I made a DIY toddler busy board for Eli! This month’s theme is unusual items. Of course we still were to use at least one power tool. I used saws and a drill. Eli loves all the gadgets mounted to the activity board. I can already see a difference in his ability to work the hardware bits and bobs.

I have an oh so easy project for you! It’s a mirror frame chalkboard. The mirror was broken, but the frame was perfect to make into a chalkboard. I even used the masonite board that helped hold the mirror in place. Spray paint, and chalkboard paint sprayed with my Finish Max and this project was finished in record time! Oh, bonus! I added a Chalk Couture transfer to take it to the next level.
It’s time for the Thrift Store Decor team to get together to show you our easy thrift store makeovers! My project this month is a small footstool that I redid for the camper.

You will love the projects from my friends!

This month’s Power Tool Challenge was to make a sign. I’ve made a lot of signs, so I thought it would be fun to make a pumpkin sign greeting Fall with the words “hello Fall”. The rustic pumpkin is made out of pallet boards. I love the way it turned out and I hope you do to. Maybe it will inspire you to make your own pumpkin sign. If not, maybe one of the other great signs will inspire you!
